Just okay. It's really too easy to be called hiking. The views are okay. There are some parts of the boardwalk that were a little low and I found myself looking out for snakes rather than enjoying the scenery.

Love this park. Has a little bit of everything (water views, woods and open fields).

Smaller place than I was expecting but nice boardwalks. Nice for a place to get outside for a relaxing stroll, not for getting in miles though.

I love this trail, but it is a weekend hot spot, so expect crowds. During the week, it's less populated. I've never felt as though bicyclists were competing with walkers, but we always moved to the side to let them pass. I truly love the scenery along this area of the canal and river and appreciate the interpretive signs that have been placed since the area became a National Heritage Area. As noted from previous comments, this is not a hiking trail, and is very attainable for those just wanting to go for a nice, scenic walk with the family. If visiting, please take a moment to pause at Major Donahue's memorial.

This is a very easy boardwalk trail (with a couple of options to wander off the boardwalks). It's a great nature-viewing area located behind a Zaxby's on a four-lane, divided highway. This is a great place for nature viewing, and anyone who doesn't mind walking around in a small loop will be treated to some lovely views.

This is a great trail, though weekends see an uptick in traffic. It's amazingly quiet and peaceful, given how close it is to downtown (and how close it gets at one point to Riverwatch Parkway). Very picturesque with great river and canal views throughout the trail.

Great place to explore. Love this area.
